International Patient Registry

A very brief, new survey will be available in the online patient registry by mid-January. Make sure you’ve signed up ahead of time and you will receive a reminder notification. More about this survey:

The so-called “5mm rule” in Chiari malformation treatment has come into question because it does not accurately predict symptom severity or treatment success. In it, a patient is considered to have a Chiari malformation if their cerebellar tonsils are located at 5mm or greater below the foramen magnum, or the opening at the top of the spinal canal. The goal of this survey is to determine whether or not this rule has greatly impacted the likelihood of accessing neurosurgical Chiari care over the years. This survey will take less than five minutes to complete!

Chiari Surgical Success Scale
Enrollment is beginning on the CSSS. We are very excited to see this project through. In the next few months, we plan to offer a video crash course on the study and answer any questions you might have about the study.
